Police officers in Lang’ata, Nairobi, are currently investigating a distressing shooting incident that took place inside the residence of an officer affiliated with the presidential escort unit.

According to reports obtained by Kenyans.co.ke, the incident unfolded during the Easter celebrations along the Southern Bypass.

Upon returning home with his family, the officer became embroiled in a heated argument with his 29-year-old wife.

The dispute quickly escalated, leading to a concerning turn of events.

Allegedly, the wife retrieved a Jericho pistol from the bedroom and, in a moment of distress, pointed it at herself, threatening self-harm.

The couple’s children were present during this alarming confrontation.

In a brave and heart-wrenching act, one of the children, a student at Lang’ata Barracks, intervened, imploring their mother to reconsider her actions.

Attempting to prevent tragedy, the child engaged in a struggle with the mother to disarm her.

Unfortunately, amidst the chaos, a single round was discharged from the firearm, resulting in injuries to both the mother and the child.

Swift action was taken to address the injuries, with both victims promptly transported to a local hospital in Nairobi.

Medical personnel attended to them, assessing their conditions and providing necessary treatment. Fortunately, their injuries were not life-threatening, and they were reported to be in stable condition.

Authorities, including the Sub-County Police Commander, Criminal Investigation Officer, Officer Commanding Station, and Officer Commanding Police Post, were swiftly deployed to the scene of the incident.

Their primary objective was to document the events comprehensively and gather evidence to aid in the ongoing investigation.

During their examination of the scene, law enforcement recovered critical pieces of evidence, including the Jericho pistol used in the incident. The firearm was found to be loaded with fourteen rounds of ammunition, with one round already discharged during the altercation. Additionally, spent cartridges and other relevant items were collected as part of the investigation process.
